Abstract

The effects of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins with flexible substrate in the promotion of cell adhesion were investigated. The 35 mm dishes with and without silicone substrate strip as the substrate for all ECM treatments were used for the investigation. It was observed that culture groups with no silicone substrate and no ECM treatment possessed lowest cell density of 18 cells/mm2. The results show that silicone substrates with ECM treatment especially with collagen IV support endothelial cell adhesion better as compared to regular tissue culture dishes.
